BREAKING NEWS - OHV Challenges FS Planning Rule

Dear OHV Enthusiast,

Effective OHV advocacy requires us to be substantively engaged in stakeholder groups, on-site projects, volunteerism, trail ethics, politics, legal, and the administrative process.

As you know, I am a contractor to the BlueRibbon Coalition and have served as their Western Representative for over 19 years. In that capacity, I have had lead roles on behalf of the organization on critical access issues such as the Clinton-Gore Roadless Initiative, the Sierra Nevada Framework, and their related legal and administrative challenges.

I want to bring to your attention a new legal battle of similar import that challenges the Forest Service's Planning Rule. The suit questions the agency's move from congressional mandated multiple -uses, which includes recreation, to a new mission: ecological sustainability.

On June 5, BRC joined with a large group of multiple-use stakeholders and filed suit to challenge the Forest Service Planning Rule. On behalf of BRC, I filed a declaration as part of that brief.

I would urge you to review both the brief and the declaration at the links below:

Link to Planning Rule Legal Brief (52 pages)

Link to Don Amador/BRC's Declaration (7 pages)

I believe this will prove to be one of OHV's most important legal battles in the 21st Century. I urge your support of BRC's legal effort and consider making a tax-deductible donation today to help them/us continue the fight.

Donate Here to Support Legal Challenge (add notation that it is for the planning rule lawsuit)

Thanks for your review of this important issue!
